Port Adelaide Power vs Richmond Tigers AFL Preliminary Finals Tips
- Friday October 16 | Adelaide Oval | 7.50pm AEDT
Minor premiers Port Adelaide will have home ground advantage and head into this clash fresh after earning a week off with their win over Geelong a fortnight ago. Richmond’s dream of making it back-to-back premierships is still alive after conquering St Kilda by 31 points in the semi-finals this past weekend. Port prevailed 93-72 when the two sides met earlier this season in Round 11.
Brisbane Lions vs Geelong Cats
- Saturday October 17 | Gabba | 7.40pm AEDT
Brisbane will be more determined than ever to emerge victorious here and gain rare home ground advantage for the Grand Final – however, they will need to overturn a poor record against Geelong, with the side recording just one win over the Cats since 2013. Geelong bounced back from their opening loss of the Finals to Port by demolishing Collingwood by 68 points in the semi-finals, blitzing the Pies with a dominant first-half display.
